happened. >> there is no exam for being a united states senator. >> it is a matter of tricking enough voters. >> the bar is in the ground. >> what an amazing day two on the failure to unearth the conspiracy of how to lie to the american people. >> he is like a human whack-a-mole. ron johnson gets too close to him and your brain cells die. this is like the legacy of ron johnson. he attributes the warming of the earth to sun spots to gee logical spots of time. he is convinced that there is a conspiracy and there is none there. nor is it with hillary clinton saying it doesn't matter. he is obsessed with you know, he is obsessed with suspects who are no longer being examined and we know who did it. but he is following vapor trails to nowhere. >> i thought marco rubio did well i wondered if ron johnson was part of a one-two punch. he was going to really try to be -- men al migitry. >> it was striking to me. the sense of and this is bipartisan. the sense of paranoya anxiety that permeates every discussion of america's roll e in the worl and foreign policy. you would think we are consumed by
, senator franken and others have introduced bills in the united states senate to address precisely the questions that you are asking, governor, and we have supported them and we continue to look forward -- as a prosecutor i always want more tools. you know, i see a problem out there and i want to have the tools to fix it. we passed a hate crimes law in 2009 that enables us to work with local law enforcement in much more effective ways to combat hate crimes including but not limited to lgbt motivated violence. so we'd love to have more tools. but, you know, with the tools that we currently have, we're doing as much as we can and i think ruslyn's point about the uptick in the number of complaints we're both receiving, i'm not sure that necessarily reflects, as ruslyn correctly pointed out, that there's an uptick in violence. the doctrine of futility often resulted in less complaints being seen. i think there's a commitment in the federal level to doing our level best on these issues. >> tom, you talk about tools. ruslyn, what kind of tools, part of this is raising awareness, look
republicans have broken the united states senate through abusing the rules. >> it looks like there are going to be a number of -- many more filibusters on motions to proceed. do you think -- do you have any plans to change the filibuster? >> yes, i do. i've said so publicly, and i continue to feel that way. i think that the rules have been abused and that we're going to work to change them. >> first press conference, day after the election, harry reid saying that going forward things are going to change. specifically, this was going to change. the de facto rule that republicans have gerrymandered in the senate for lack of a better term that pretty much everything requires 60 votes to pass now. that has never been how things have worked in this country. i mean, constitutionally it takes a supermajority to impeach a president or ratify a treaty or amend the constitution but not to pass an ordinary bill. ordinary bill passage should overmany discounts to thine customers! [old english accent] safe driver, multi-car, paid in full -- a most fulsome bounty indeed, lord jamie. i feel good about it g
sort of sprung it out on people. i still don't believe the votes are there in the united states senate and the house to pass anything like either the carbon tax or by the way the democrats are also talking about maybe an energy tax, like a gasoline tax. there is no political support there. that's why i think kim is right. if they are going to do this it's going to have to be through the regulatory angle trying to outlaw carbon in that way. >> james, why mention it so prominently or was this sort and switch for the environmentalists. you mention it re tore rickly and say i'm really behind you. in policy terms, you don't give them anything. >> there may be some bait and switch. i think this is the key. if he doesn't neeyd to get anythingt. through the congress, as the potomac watch column in friday's journal. >> kim strousal, there is a lot of regulatory authority they think they have. court decision a few years ago empowers them to regulate carbon. they think they are off to the races here. so this suggests to me that maybe the play is, with all of the business community expecting an ap
more notable secretary of state than she was united states senator first lady. >> isn't it -- any senator is not going to have the power to actually do things -- >> but, bonnie, seriously speaking she's at the crescendo of her career, will be a grandmother some point soon. and if i'm hillary clinton i don't run for president again for however many consecutive years now she's been voted the most admired woman in the u.s. above oprah, above michelle obama and others. and so she really can go out on a high note without that rough and tumble of a campaign. i sat here -- the reason i'm laughing, hillary clinton i sat her eight years ago heard it eight years ago. she was beat by somebody nobody was talked about at the time. it's not going to be easy for 70-year-old hillary clinton to turn back some democrats -- >> won't be quite that -- she'll be 68. >> believe me we always age it out for women, don't we? >> they're not distinguished just old. >> seriously speaking there are a lot of up and comers in democratic party i don't think are going to let her have that. >> all right. we are out
that the tea party brought certainly hasn't gone away. anytime you've got 36 united states senators who voted down sandy relief a couple days ago, you know that something has fundamentally changed about the way that republicans talk about government. so i think it's too early to say that they're dead, but all the things dana points to are good signs and signs of some kind of sanity seeping in. >> and dana, maybe it's all in a name. because i think what continues on for sure is this conservative domination particularly in republican primaries. i mean, here you've got mitch mcconnell being threatened now in kentucky and next year's election from the right. >> right. and the tea party's never really been an organized political force. and i'm using that as a shorthand for the far right that's been dominating the party right now. and as i point out in the column, that force really isn't going anywhere because of the redistricting, because of the way things are structured in the house. and because of this primary system. we also have saxby chambliss bowing out rather than face a primary challenge.
can see that within the united states senate, the assault weapons ban in particular is a very tough road. because it's not just republicans. >> i can see because the nra is venal, they come after you, they put together large amounts of money to defeat you, they did this in '93 and they intend to continue it. >> this morning on the front page of the "new york times," i was reading about their program now to provide weapons a -- in other words, here is a whole new group of people that we can get these weapons to. they just don't happen to be adults, they're children. children will guns in terms of hunting is not a new phenomenon, they say we train them, we want to make sure that people who have guns know how to use them. >> one that's going to fight you tooth and nail and this is a couple of things they tell every insane killer in america that schools are the safest place to inflict maximum mayhem with minimum risk. politicians have no business and no authority denying us the right, the ability and the moral imper tiff to protect ourselves and our loved ones from harm. >> wynn la pier
is intimidated by the jewish lobby in the united states senate. >> first, i -- >> name one. >> i don't know. >> why would you say it? >> i didn't have in mind a specific person. >> do you agree it's a provocative statement, that i can't think of a more provocative thing to say about the relationship between the united states and israel and the senate or the congress in which you sit? >> there's been a lot of that today. during the bush years, of course, senator hagel was known as the rebellous republican and maverick, and now a lot of his votes and statements are being brought back by his former republican colleagues. >> shepard: but unless he screws it up he is getting through and the rest is politics. >> it may be still a battle ahead because if one senator objects on the senate floor, it could send the vote up to 60 votes to require passage so that could be trouble. three high profile republicans said they are a no. john cornyn from, senator imhave, and senator marco rubio. another likely no is john mccain who tried to talk to hagel about the troop surge in iraq. >> please an the questio

able to serve in this capacity. there is no one in the united states senate that has spent more time than you have on issues with the experience you have developed while being on this committee and spending time abroad with world leaders. there is al most no olmost no oo spent that kind of time and effort. i am happy for you. i know the many conversations we have had over the last two weeks, you are very anxious to serve. you are ready to go. my sense is your confirmation will go through very quickly. i do look forward to your testimony today. secretary clinton is here today after a day of hearings both here and in the house. i think you are inheriting the department that has numbers of challenges. we saw a systemic issues that need to be addressed and in the process of being addressed right now. our nation has budgetary constraints, which means that in all of these departments creativity will have to be utilized to make sure we make the most of what we have and making sure that our u.s. interests are put forth. we have a world that is a dangerous world and things continue to come ov
the nation's economy. it deserves our support in the united states senate. i congratulate speaker boehner on his leadership with regard to this issue and the house for its bipartisan approach to a tough but necessary vote. let us pass this legislation today and move on to debate over what further deficit-reduction options need to keep america's economy moving forward. in the words of lincoln, "the occasion is piled high with difficulty and we must rise with the occasion." thank you, mr. president. i yield the floor. a senator: mr. president? the presiding officer: the senator from utah. mr. hatch: mr. president, right now the federal debt stands at roughly $16.4 trilli trillion. i don't know how anyone can hear that number and not be appalled. nor do i believe there's been -- there will be over ten years $2.5 trillion in deficit reduction. in fact, i don't see any deficit reduction except perhaps bringing our soldiers back. but that's not particularly deficit reduction, since it looks like we're going to have difficulty maintaining the military in the -- with the strength that it's had in
, to the united states senate. a longtime member of the senate club. he will be introduced by secretary of state hillary clinton. senator john mccain will also play a role. interesting because mccain has a very similar resume to john kerry but a very different political philosophy. last night with greta van sus traivan susteren he talked about serrie as secretary of indicate. >> reporter: john and i don't agree on a lot of issues but we have a relationship which was forged years ago, and so i have confidence that he will carry out the president's agenda and serve the president. >> reporter: mccain said he would not have selected john kerry to be secretary of state because they obviously have a very different philosophy. he does expect that kerry will be effective in carrying out obama's philosophy. martha: when they make these nominees they know they have some that will be easy, some are more heavy lifting. where does this one fall. >> reporter: john kerry is the least controversial of the ones coming up right now. 50% of independents would and most of the democrats would. if you were senator wo

as united states senator in the interim until that special election. uma: his appointment signals the start of the special election race. so far the only announced candidate is massachusetts congressmanned marquis. steven lynch and former republican seven scott brown have been mentioned as pass candidates. the seat was left vacant by senator kerry's confirmation as the next secretary of state. jon: right now toyota is dealing with another major car recall. rick is live at the breaking news desk with this information. >> reporter: in this involves bad air bags and windshield wipers. toyota is recalling more and million vehicles. the corolla, and the corolla matrix sold in 2003 and 2004. they have air bags that could deploy inadvertently. the bad wipers are on the ix models sold between 2006 and 2012, apparently the wipers don't work in heavy snow. toyota has reclaimed its crown out selling number two gm but recalls have been a problem for the japanese company over the last several years hurting the bottom line and these latest recalls will only add to those problems. toyota says that owners
of ammunition. those are just two of the provisions of the bill put forward by the united states senator whose own hands were bloodied by one of the most famous shooting acts in california history. cnn's chief correspondent, dana bash, was at the emotional announcement on capitol hill. >> reporter: wolf, with all the gun control measures that president obama provided this one, this assault-style ban is one of the toughest to get through congress. her determination comes from a very public tragedy four decades ago. for diane feinstein, it is personal. >> well, i became mayor as a product of assassination. both mayor masconey and supervisor have been shot and killed. >> reporter: the death of her colleagues, including harvey milk, the first openly gay public official was so traumatic she rarely discussed it. >> we're somebody that was very close to a tragic shooting. >> reporter: but here, in the launch to push the assault weapons ban, she talked about it in graphic detail. >> i was the one that found supervisor milk's body, and i was the one trying to get a pulse. once you have been through one

't know what his thinking was, but he has a bad habit of forgets there's a united states senate. the constitution says there are 1100 positions like secretary of state and member of the national labor relations board that require advise and consent of the senate. if you sent someone up here that the senators don't want to confirm, they can't be confirmed. i was that way, president bush the first sent my name up education senator 20 years ago and some democratic senators held me up three months and that's what the senate does. >> greta: a single republican could have held up the appointment. it's not that the senate is-- the senate majority is democrats, so, one single republican could have held up the-- >> no, not really. it's 40 republicans or if 40 senators can block an appointment. it takes 40. >> greta: okay, so he would have gotten-- wouldn't you expect his appointments to the nlrb in light of the fact there are so many democrats in the senate, that is the majority, that they would have gotten confirmed anyway? >> neighbor, but in these appointees said we think we can get r
a nuclear option in the united states senate. a lot of people don't appreciate how important it was for us to get that done. chuck schumer and i and others and dick durbin were involved in a bipartisan effort to avert that. thanks to the cooperation of our two leaders we were able to do that. there is a desire for bipartisanship here in this body. i think we can show the country and the world that we are capable of tackling this issue, a looming and terrible issue that has to be resolved in a bipartisan basis. and i believe the majority of the american people support such an effort. and i want to thank my colleagues again. and the ever congenial senator schumer. >> now we'll have even more congenial senator durbin. >> i want to thank my colleagues, john mccain, thanks. we have been down this road before, but i feel very good about our chances this time. chuck, thank you for your leadership on this. i'm sure that marco and bob and lindsey and i understand you've been the force behind this. if he's the glue, you're the force. and it worked. we have come to this moment. and here we are facing
the united states senate. and that's because despite the obvious frustrations of recent days and years, a frustration that we all share this place remains one of the most extraordinary institutions of any kind on the face of the earth. on occasion we all heard a senator leave here and take their leave condemning the senate for being broken, an impossible setting in which to try to do the people's business. well, i want to be very clear about my feelings. i do not believe the senate is broken. certainly not as an institution. there is nothing wrong with the senate that can't be fixed by what's right about the senate. the predominant and weighty notion that 100 american citizens chosen by their neighbors to serve from states is different as massachusetts and montana can always choose to put parochial or personal interests aside and find the national interest. i believe it is the honor of a lifetime, an extraordinary privilege to have represented the commonwealth of massachusetts and the united states senate for more than 28 years. what a remarkable gift it has been to carry the banner of
in the united states senate for almost four years, so no, i don't think she's made a very good president. >> and finally, sir, according to a new book, president obama call called the widow of one of the people who died in benghazi, sean smith, the day after the attack and said, promise to avenge the deaths of americans. do you believe him? >> well, i'll take him as his word. but you know, that was another curious question i would like to ask secretary clinton is why when those bodies were coming home, she went up to tyrone woods' father and said we were going to bring this guy who created this video to justice. what happens what was that about? they're just trying to continue to perpetuate this false narrative. this wasn't caused by the fact that al-qaeda was on the rise. they're misleading the american public. >> thank you. >>> still to come, we're facing some of the coldest temperatures in this country. some scientists say it's due to global warming. plus, apple's shares plunging today and manti te'o admits he lied, so is he telling the truth now? try running four.ning a restaurant is
southeast asian country in less pleasant circumstances than we're accustomed to in the united states senate. >> john is the right choice. and i urge his speedy confirmation. >> it's john john mccain so nice. much better reception than clinton herds got yesterday during the testimony of the bengahzi attacks. but it wasn't all warm and fuzzy. senator rob johnson who went after hillary clinton tried to get kerry to contradict hillary clinton's testimony. but he did not take the bait. take a listen. >> senator, if you're trying to get some daylight between me and secretary of state hillary clinton, that's not going to happen today on that score. >> jennifer: when it became clear that he could not get him to turn on hillary clinton he tried to get john kerry to criticize the bengahzi situation, and then he turned it around and made senator johnson look foolish. >> you worked with me then. i'm going on so we can get that behind us so we can find out what happened, then we can move onioned that. can you make that commitment to me. >> senator, in all fairness i think we do know what happened. i thi
on fiscal sanity will be deemed not series by the media and it will fail in the united states senate and will not make it to the president's desk where he would veto it anyway. any serious proposal to restrain government growth is immediately deemed non-serious in washington, d.c. the balanced budget amendment is called non-serious as are term limits, capping federal growth to the growth of the private sector economy is deemed not serious in washington, d.c. anything serious is deemed not serious in washington d.c.. when senator obama voted against raising the debt ceiling, he said he was doing so because the national debt was at an outrageous $8 trillion. he clarified for a fact -- $8 trillion, trillion with a 't'. now our national debt is over $16 trillion and climbing, larger than our tire economy and he is not a word about it at all. he calls a progress. his campaign slogan said it is forward. i've got news for the president, if washington's debt is going forward, america's economy is going backward. instead of worrying about managing the economy, it is time to address how we can
states senate to fill open spots on the labor relations panel. the court says the power did -- president did not have their power. the president said the senate was not in session. the course said it was. some analysts are calling this unanimous decision an emberrassing setback for the president. president obama said he made the appointment of the senate republicans blocked every single thing we did. >> they've idea a rule where they stayed in session but nobody was there. >> they have a couple of people come in and hold, literally, a minute session, and then recess for a couple more days and then old another minute session. they were doing this especially or specifically to avoid saying they were in n recess so the president couldn't make recess appointment. he said they weren't really in session so he appointed three people to the nlrb. this is a year ago, january of 2012. that's they've made hundreds of decisions, these three guys and another member of the board, and now the court says they were never actually appoint, which calls into question whether any of the decisions the nlrb ma
system? it makes no sense to me whatsoever. let me just add, there are many losses in the united states senate rate for this year. there is so much comfort each about murdoch come a nobody paid attention to the fact that you had all of these hand- picked establishment candidates who lost. who were not named aiken and murdoch. in new mexico, montana, florida, ohio. virginia. deb fisher one in nebraska. she was the third choice. she is now a u.s. century bank do not let the people -- they have all the sources, all the money. how do i expend those losses? no competition. clearing the field. when george w. bush was told that he could win, the very first primary comp petition -- contest emma john mccain beat him in points, he became a better candidate overnight. all of a sudden, somebody beat him. he became a much better candidate overnight and became a two term residents. we should want competition. that person never is ready for prime time. i think some of these governors are terrific. this movement should come up with a job description. if you are going to hire at national review, posted
, a 42-year-old united states senator, and a 60-year old former governor of florida. but do we need another bush? >> jennifer: i know -- 2016 is a long time away, but there was an interview from "60 minutes" -- >> it is never too long for the media. >> jennifer: it is never too long. let's listen to a sound bite of that interview. >> you guys in the press are incorrigible. i was literally inaugurated four days ago.
